Bible Challenge – Genesis 3

“The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?” v.1 (NLT)

Have you ever doubted something? Doubt causes us to question what we believe to be true and sometimes question what we know to be right.  Satan, uses doubt to cause us to question the things of God.  For the person who doesn’t know God, he uses doubt to cause you to question the existence of God and the character of God. As a believer, he will use things from you past, to try to keep you from living in the new life that is found in Christ. He does this so you doubt God’s power and your witness.

Doubt is crippling and if we are not careful, we can fall victim to it very easily! Satan wants nothing more than to lead us astray and keep us unsure of the things of God.  Here are five ways things Satan uses against us to keep us from experiencing God in the way He desires us to know Him.

  • Doubt – Makes me question God’s Word and His goodness
  • Discouragement – Makes me look at my problems rather that at God
  • Diversion – Makes the wrong things seem attractive so that I will want them more than the right things
  • Defeat – Makes me feel like a failure so that I don’t even try
  • Delay – Makes me put off doing something so that it never gets done

Have you experienced any of these? Where we tend to focus is what we tend to go toward.  If you are feeling or experiencing any of these things, ask God for wisdom and help.  He’s closer than you think and desires to hear from you and help.

Today, have you let Satan lead you away from God. It usually start’s small with a simple question, “Did God Really …?” Satan will attack us in these ways. The only way to stand against it is to seek the Truth and ask God for clarity, understanding, wisdom, and deliverance.
